Practicing safe seed


Successful completion of a seeding project requires good planning and attention to detail. With this paper, I hope to educate consumers about seed-related issues that are critical to project success. Good communication between vendors and customers will help the latter develop reasonable expectations and will greatly contribute to satisfactory project completion. A thorough knowledge of weeds, plant materials, seed certification, seed testing, planting guidelines, and common industry practices will greatly assist in writing bid specifications that can prevent disappointment.
